New Delhi: After India revoked the visa to Uyghur activist Dolkun Isa, apparently under pressure from China, two other Chinese dissidents on Thursday alleged that their visas were revoked.

Activist Lu Jinghua and 22-year-old Hong Kong-based activist Ray Wong alleged that their visas were blocked by the Indian government.

The two activists were scheduled to attend an inter-faith conference this month in Dharamsala, the seat of Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama.

They claimed that the Indian government has been pressurised by China in order to withdraw the visas However, the Indian government said that the visas were not issued in the place for any kind of revocation in both cases.

It said that Jinghua hadn't been issued a visa at all as her documents were 'illegible' and revealed inconsistencies in the way she had stated the purpose of her visit.

In the previous case of Dolkun as well, it was stated that his application was for an e-tourist. Later it was found out that he was travelling to India to attend a conference in Dharamsala, said Indian government.
